I am a principal applied scientist at Microsoft, in the Office India Intelligence team. My research interests lie in the areas of machine learning and optimization. I am based in Hyderabad, India.

I previously worked as an applied scientist at Amazon, in the India Machine Learning team, headed by Rajeev Rastogi.

I completed my B.Tech in computer science from IIT Bombay in 2009. After a brief stint as a software engineer at Cisco, I returned to IIT Bombay as a grad student. I completed my Ph.D. under the supervision of Prof. J. Saketha Nath. I then worked as a postdoctoral researcher with Prof. Matthias Hein at Saarland University.

We are hiring.
Microsoft IDC Hyderabad is seeking applications for scientist and Ph.D. intern positions in the areas of machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and computer vision.
